Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to state-of-the-art treatments that transform your smile. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you may be able to achieve a Hollywood-ready smile that makes you feel more confident and attractive.

The Your Community Smile team pays extreme attention to detail so that your smile not only looks better but looks like you were born with it.

How can I whiten my smile?

If your teeth have grown dull and dingy due to aging or stains, the team at Your Community Smile recommends either professional teeth whitening treatments or dental veneers. 

Professional-level teeth-whitening treatments are both stronger and safer than those you can buy over the counter (OTC). Just a single one-hour treatment can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades.

There is no better time to whiten your teeth than just after your teeth cleaning appointment. Consequently, Your Community Smile offers $50 off whitening treatments if you schedule them with your cleaning appointment. 

However, you may opt for dental veneers if you want permanently whiter and better-shaped teeth. Dental veneers are fingernail-thin, tooth-shaped caps made of porcelain or composite materials that fit directly over your own teeth. Veneers are stain-resistant, so they never need whitening.

How can I have straighter or better-shaped teeth?

Dental veneers are a perfect fix for minor alignment problems, such as gapped teeth. Dr. Abtahi can also use veneers to change the shape of your teeth so that they're more even. You can get just one or two veneers or transform all of your front teeth.

The team at Your Community Smile also offers discreet straightening systems, like Invisalign® and SureSmile, for more complex alignment problems. By using a series of clear, graduated aligner trays that slip over your teeth, you can fix:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Twisted teeth
  • Gapped teeth

Clear orthodontic trays may take up to 18 months to move your teeth into a healthier, more attractive position. You then wear a retainer at night to maintain your beautiful new smile.

Does cosmetic dentistry look natural?

Dr. Abtahi takes painstaking care to create a natural look and feel for your new smile. She even considers aesthetic factors like your skin tone when ordering veneers or other restorations to ensure that your teeth and skin harmonize perfectly.
